Support » Fixing WordPress » I need to remove things…

  • Before I get too far into this, I need to ask:

    There are elements of WordPress I really don’t want like, RSS, XFN, Valid XHTML, Comments RSS over in the SideBar. Just playing with the default template and trying a few others at this point. In fact there are many pages where I just want content and don’t necessarily need to solicit comments from readers, no TrackBacks, RSS etc. Just don’t need ’em. And, a majority of the stock templates (boy, there sure are a lot!) are providing a display of two (2) “Home” tabs/links at the top. Haven’t figured out why but I only need one, so…

    Right now, at my very beginning learning stage, I just want to know if I’ll be able to remove those Template/Theme elements sometime down the line once I’ve given WP documentation a good read through of the instructions. That SideBar, Header, Footer should be completely and totally editable using <some> process which I hopefully will learn about, right? Same should be true for the main body or page, right?

    Yes, I’m selfish! I don’t want to devote a huge amount of time to WP only find out later that these elements are somehow set in stone and can’t be removed or editted out.

    Am I one the right track in my thinking?

  • Probably – yes/yes/yes – and yes I think you can do all that and more.

    You can layout your pages (using themes) to be as complex or as simple as you like (assuming that you are suitably proficient in php/html). None of the elements you mention have to remain.

    My thanks to you both. Off to read some more…
